Showcasing Tanzania’s famous northern reserves, this 5-day safari delivers both wildlife and scenery in equal portions. Sit back and watch the Serengeti’s wildlife ebb and flow across the savannah; you also have Big 5 game viewing in the stunning Ngorongoro Crater to look forward to as well as Tanzania’s biggest elephant herds in Tarangire, a wild game park studded with giant baobab trees. And, depending on the time of year you travel, you may have nature’s greatest spectacle to witness: the incomparable Wildebeest Migration.
You are in the professional hands of a registered guide who takes care of the driving and shares their knowledge of environment with you. Travelling between accommodations gives you time to absorb the Tanzanian landscape: Maasai villages and red-robed herdsmen mingle with views of Rift Valley mountains and giant long-dead volcanic craters. Your accommodation – a mix of tented camps and a farmhouse-style lodge – is all en suite and very welcome after a long day on safari. You sit down to candle-lit suppers with cold drinks in a cheery, communal atmosphere, and will have to time to recharge your camera batteries and electrical gadgets.
Ideal for first-time travellers to Africa, this tour delivers a comprehensive and very diverse safari. Given its relatively short duration, it is perfect for those constrained by time or for travellers who want to add on a beach holiday in Zanzibar after their safari.
